Local and federal authorities performed additional soil sampling for Agent Orange contamination on Wednesday and Thursday, this time with assistance from Agent Orange Survivors of Guam founder Brian Moyer, who arrived on island on Monday.
Officials from the Guam Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. EPA Superfund Technical Assessment & Response Team took part in the sampling, which occurred at Polaris Point off of Route 1, Nimitz Hill, Yigo and Tiyan. Sampling was completed on Thursday.
"Off-base soil sampling for Agent Orange first occurred in November 2018, at areas off of NCS road along Route 3, Potts Junction, Nimitz Hill and a pipe line tie-in located in Tiyan. Guam EPA, US EPA and Moyer agreed to schedule Moyer’s visit to Guam to assist with future soil samplings," according to a press release from Guam EPA.
